Can I just say that Universal Studios and the Pirate Dinner were amazing and are probably my most favorite thing to do in Southern California. Skip Disneyland people and go straight to those and believe me you won't regret it. Lars and I have an annual pass to Universal Studios and plan on visiting monthly, yep, its that awesome. The last show of the day we saw there was the Water World show, the coolest show. After the show the actors came out and we got pictures with them. These were real television and movie actors too, they were so nice and down to earth. People from True Blood, CSI New York, Law and Order, Miss Congeniality, and more. It was amazing.
In between all that there was much reminiscing and laughter.Then while Lars and I were at work, Brandon and Melissa visited Disneyland and in the evenings we gathered together to play. There was a massive heatwave during there stay so we played a lot in doors, either way it was fun because we were together and when you are with your friends hot weather doesn't matter because together you keep it real and stay cool. We even got to have our reunion tour and play some Rock Band.
For Lars's birthday we met up for dinner with more friends at The Market Broiler, one of our favorite fish and sushi places. Then we headed to Vegas for more adventure and The Amazing Jonathan Show. It was hilarious and awesome. Lars got to go on stage for almost half the show. He thought I had planned it, but it was all by chance and it was the best. I can tell Lars was having the time of his life. You can read more about his experience here. We went to the Canal Street, at The Orleans casino, and had THE BEST steak I have ever had in my life. All the food was amazing and melted in my mouth, seriously it was an orgasm for your mouth. We did a lot of exploring and picture taking. My theme for most of the pictures was "jumping". I tried to jump in every shot and I did good. I watch next top model and have learned a thing or two about posing. I will be a star someday, you just wait.
Anyway, the vacation with our dear Utah friends was amazing and we loved it and cannot wait to do it again. Thanks Brandon and Melissa for coming to see us. California misses you and so do we, so come back soon.
I made a slide show of some of our favorite pictures watch for the amazing "jumping" shots.
